Synopsis

Sharks in British Seas is the first book in 17 years to deal with sharks off the coasts of the British Isles. Shark sightings have been on the increase in recent years, especially in the South-West. The second edition of this book contains revisions, updates, many new photographs, three new chapters, and additions to existing chapters. The first edition is still available at a reduced price.Sharks in British Seas seeks to appeal across the board to the shark buff or enthusiast, as well as shark 'lay' people with only a passing interest. The author clearly believes that sharks are there to be enjoyed and celebrated rather than feared, and are only dangerous when man is either unlucky or stupid, and he examines the realities of the dangers sharks pose to man. He also looks at the far more real threat posed by man to sharks.Richard Peirce is a founding partner of Shark Cornwall, currently chairman of the Shark Trust, the Shark Conservation Society, and is a past Trustee of the Basking Shark Society. He presented BBC Radio 4's Shark Hunt series, as well as the films Sharks in British Seas and Shark Attack Britain. The first edition sold out at over 3000 copies and there is enough new and different information in the second edition to make it a must even for those who bought the book first time around.
